Michelle Phan had every right to use the music she had in her wildly famous YouTube makeup videos … because the company that owned the rights said she could … at least her lawyers claim they did.
As TMZ previously reported, Ultra Records — home to EDM giants Deadmau5, Kaskade, Calvin Harris, and many more — sued Phan for copyright infringement … claiming she stole dozens of their songs for her videos.
But Phan’s lawyers tell TMZ … Ultra fully agreed to allow Phan to use the music and feels her videos have promoted their music and “showcased [them] to an international audience.”
Phan’s legal team says Phan plans to file a lawsuit of her own.
For his part, Kaskade has taken to Twitter to defend Phan, writing over a series of tweets … “I’m not suing @MichellePhan + @ultrarecords isn’t my lapdog. I can’t do much about the lawsuit except voice support for her.”
